Investing in energy-efficient windows not only saves a dramatic amount of heating and cooling costs, but new windows also increase your curb appeal. They create less condensation, make you more comfortable in the heat of summer and cool of winter, and they have the additional benefit of protecting your home’s interior. The typical homeowner will spend an average of just under $2000 on utility bills per year. This data comes from the U.S. Department of Energy. Much of that money is wasted because of window and doors that are not energy efficient. The climate that you live in should be a consideration in addition to style, color, and budget. Choosing the right type of replacement window glass will cut your heating and cooling cost considerably.
Four main materials remain the ones used in most replacement windows. They are: wood, aluminum, fiberglass, and vinyl. Each of these has it's own strengths and drawbacks. At Construction Unlimited, LLC, we can help you determine which is best for your home, and your climate. Fiberglass is an increasingly popular choice for a replacement window because it has a high insulation value and will not warp or crack over time. The Dept. of Energy has determined that fiberglass windows offer the greatest potential on your home utility bills.
If you have condensation on your existing windows, that can be a problem. It may even freeze on the window if it gets too cold. We have the replacement windows for you that not only eliminate the condensation problem, but are more energy efficient, and thus, are warmer. We can install triple-pane windows. Triple-pane windows offer several advantages, including stopping heat transfer and reducing noise. These windows are typically filled with an inert gas such as argon between the panes. Your triple pane windows will help keep you cooler in the summer heat and warmer in the cold of winter.
If you want a window that gives you a beautiful view, then consider installing a picture window or a bay window. At Construction Unlimited, LLC we can custom design the shape and size to suit your preferences.
